We at Northrop Grumman know the outer reaches of our universe like the streets we grew up on. We've got the best minds on earth under one roof and we use them to solve the toughest problems in space.

Northrop Grumman will highlight its employees' successes at the 30th Space Symposium, as exemplified by three space systems that are observing major on-orbit anniversaries this year. Each is adding value by performing for many years beyond its design life.

  • The U.S. Air Force's Milstar Flight 1 satellite, which carries a protected communications payload designed and built by TRW (now Northrop Grumman) – 20 years on orbit
  • NASA's Chandra X-Ray Observatory – 15 years on orbit, and
  • NASA's Earth Observation System Aura – 10 years on orbit.

The spacecraft, payloads and instruments we build are easily recognized by several hallmarks: Technical excellence; Solid on-orbit performance, and Exceptional longevity.

Get to know Northrop Grumman's neighborhood during Space Symposium May 19-22 at the Broadmoor Hotel, Colorado Springs, Colo. The address is Exhibit No. 600.
